Rapid-Rate Thermal Cycle Chamber

Overview of Equipment:

High temperature rate of change with uniformity and reproducibility

The Rapid-Rate Thermal Cycle Chamber is ideal for test requiring quick changes 15°C/min ramp rate in specimen temperature and 23°C/min ramp rate for air temperature. It covers various applications from JEDEC, IEC standards to screening.

It features new technologies, such as a specimen temperature control function maintaining linear specimen temperature change rates during rapid thermal cycling, and temperature ramp control.

Features:

Uniformity, reproducibilityWind simulation allows achieving minimum temperature variations of the specimen, for accurate and quick temperature changes. Specimen temperature ramp rate is 15°C/min, air temperature ramp rate is 23°C/min.Greater temperature ramp control

High precision of the specimen temperature control achieved thanks to a sensor for temperature specimen measurement, and the embedded high-speed controller.

In addition:

  • refrigeration capacities increased at low temperatures,
  • minimization of the difference between test area and specimen temperatures,
  • airflow speed uniformity,

lead to excellent temperature ramp control.

Selection of the temperature control mode

Two temperature control modes are available:

  • A specimen temperature control mode meeting ramp rate conditions of JEDEC standard (15°C/min.)
  • An air temperature control mode for temperature cycle tests.

Free accessCable ports are equipped on both left and right side, to ease specimen access and wiring.
